Hair How To: Bouncy Blow Dry

Hands down.. this has to be one of my favourite looks for hair down. Its voluminous, soft, feminine and very sexy in a elegant way.. 

At D&G's farewell show, the hypnotically bright collection was glued together with free flowing, blow dried hair. But while blow dries advertise themselves to be easy-to-achieve, it's actually quite tricky and it’s important to get the optimum bounce in the roots and ensure the soft waves frame the face.

Here's how to get it right...

1. Towel-dry your hair and apply any variety of blow-dry enhancing cream to the roots. The product will create texture and hold. I love using Redken’s Velvet Gelatine 07 to create the D&G look.

2. Section the hair and blow-dry using a round brush. Brush away from the roots to create volume.

3. Once the hair is dry, make a centre-part and brush the hair out. This will give the bounce and fullness to the locks.

4. If you want fuller, longer-lasting waves, leave the hair to set in a few large rollers. Make sure you let them sit for a good half hr to an hr in the hair. Be sure to roll the hair in the direction you want it to sit (in this case, roll the hair under), with the hair separated into a top, middle, side and bottom section.

5. Spray hairspray on a paddle hairbrush and gently comb away from the parting in the direction of the hair. This will settle the visible flyaway strands around the crown. Remember never to directly spray hairspray on the hair for this look.

This is a very requested look from a lot of my clients.. It makes the hair glossy and silky with heaps of bounce! I just love it! You can make a middle part, side part or have it all pulled back.. Just see what will suit your face shape.

If you want a bit more of a curl, GHD the ends like the below picture...

Try it and let me know how you get on..

Much Love & Peace Xx
